Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell-joined by all 42 members of Congress-have effectively put the brakes on Harry Reid's agenda to pass amnesty for illegal immigrants,pass the new START treaty with Russia,not to mention the mad dash to repeal "Don't ask Don't tell".
He rightfully points out that the people want real action on extending the Bush era tax cuts-as well as-doing something to create an economic atmosphere in the country conducive to job creation. Now- most certainly- is not the time to raise taxes,and, that is exactly what a any kind of repeal of the Bush tax cuts would do.
Especially egregious is the idea of raising taxes for individuals or corporations making over $250,000 per year. This would be extremely harmful to-what everyone agrees is the engine of the economy-small business.
There are scores of businesses in this nation that are considered "small" that make well in excess $250,000 raising taxes on these companies at best might lead them to maintain the status quo,at worst it could drive them out of business!
As for the Democrats constant desire to tax wealthier Americans to death. Poor people do not create jobs,invest in factories or sign paychecks,rich people do! As talk radio host Sean Hannity is famous for saying... I've never had my paycheck signed by a poor person".
The best thing the Democrats could do-in this session- is renew the Bush Tax cuts,at least for the next three years,do what it takes to keep the government running, and look for every opportunity to get the government's hands out of "We the People's" pockets, and the government's nose out of our business!!
